Rigsby will serve as a guest speaker during a panel designed to provide students with a glimpse into careers surrounding hockey and an inside perspective of how science, technology and math have changed the game. The students are going through the Future Goals - Hockey Scholar program, an online program that teaches critical science, technology, engineering and math skills through hockey.
